On Wednesday, Pakistan formally laid down the foundation stone of much-awaited Kartarpur corridor, a proposed border route between India and Pakistan that will connect Sikh holy shrines.

Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara at the bank of Ravi river in Pakistan is about four km from the Dera Baba Nanak shrine. It's believed to have been built on the site where Guru Nanak, the founder of the religion, died in the 16th Century. "We wish to move forward, we want a civilised relationship", he said. "In these 100 days I took one day off and want to praise her for such a hard life during the last 100 days", the prime minister said during a ceremony marking the completion of the first 100 days of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government.

He said Pakistan and India can not understand the opportunities God has given to them. "There is no other option except friendship", Khan said.

"I am saying today, that our political leaders, our army, and all other institutions are all on one page". We always say terror and talks can't go together. He said that Pakistan had set up institutional framework with Afghanistan to settle all problems.

"The happiness I see in you today, if I were to explain to my Muslim brother and sisters, is that imagine that you are standing 4-km outside Medina (a city in Saudi Arabia where the Prophet is buried) and can not go in, and you are then given the chance to go. However, all my life I have come across small men occupying big offices who do not have the vision to see the larger picture". - AP Sikh Pilgrims gather in the Kartarpur Gurdwara Sahib after the groundbreaking ceremony.

"Bilateral dialogues and Kartarpur corridor are two different things", she said.

Poroshenko had earlier said that he attempted to speak with Putin by phone, but the Russian leader refused to take his call. Major fighting ended with a 2015 ceasefire but deadly exchanges of fire are still frequent.

Sikh pilgrims will board a bus in India, get a special permit to visit Pakistan at the border terminal and be taken to Gurdwara Sahib via special transportation. The ties between the two countries had strained after the terror attacks by Pakistan-based groups in 2016.

Swaraj, who is campaigning here ahead of the Telangana elections on December 7, said, "The moment Pakistan stops terrorist activities in India, dialogue can start but the dialogue is not connected with only the Kartarpur corridor".
